Nathan & Ida’s Hot Dog Stand – 7.30pm

Nathan and Ida Hardwerker leave the old country to build a better life for themselves in the New World: taking with them nothing but a will to succeed and a secret recipe for sauce. Encountering villains and vaudevillians, they go on a surreal journey through life, love, death and danger as they chase their dream of becoming purveyors of fine fairground foods and opening the greatest hot dog stand Coney Island has ever seen!

A feast of physical comedy served with generous helpings of clowning, mime, dance and a pinch of puppetry (with hints of the classic cartoons), this fast-paced, two-hander evokes tantalising tastes of a glorious bygone era: silent movies, carnival rides and sepia-toned postcards. An award-winning comedy rollercoaster with heart, very loosely based on a real life hot dog stand.

★★★★★ “brilliantly executed.” Views from the Gods, Camden Fringe Festival 2018

This show left me with a warm glow inside, a smile on my lips and a tear in my eye.” Daily Info Oxford 2018

Tropez! – 9pm

In chic Tropez!, a failed cat-burglar and a gentle gigolo, as different as Cointreau and Campari, form an unlikely pair and together, they take aim at the top of St-Trop! Among the jostling jet set and the glamourous glitterati these underdogs plan to pull off the biggest jewel heist in history.

This fast-paced comedy cocktail shakes together a host of outrageous characters, comedy and adventure, stirring in a touching tale of friendship with hints of passion – all set on the French Riviera.

C’est si bon, indeed!

Tropez! had every single ingredient to make this one of the most exciting gems of the fringe.” ★★★★★ Remotegoat, Brighton Fringe Festival 2019

Tropez! is comedy gold – an ode to the art of clowning, satirical script writing and minimal props with maximum effect. Nathan & Ida are the epitome of what high-quality comedy is all about.” Swindon Link, Swindon Fringe Festival 2019
